FIG. 7 is an exploded view of an electronic apparatus according to another embodiment of the application. In FIG. 7, the assembly structure is similar to the structure shown in FIG. 1. However, at least one circuit board is further included. In the embodiment, a second circuit board 200 and a third circuit board 204 are provided as an example. The second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 respectively carry a first speaker 202 and a second speaker 206 and, like the battery 130, are disposed below the display module 140, in which the second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 are actually disposed on the frame 150 as an example. The display module 140 is visible through the opening 112. The first speaker 202 is disposed in the accommodating space 114 and disposed below the second circuit board 200. The second speaker 206 is also disposed in the accommodating space 114 and disposed below the third circuit board 204.

The frame 150 is stacked over the battery module 130 and disposed below the display module 140 to secure a relative position between the battery module 130 and the display module 140. The frame 150 has at least one protruding end plate, such as two protruding end plates 152, 154, corresponding to the second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204. As a result, for example, the stereo sound effect can be achieved by the first speaker 202 and the second speaker 206. Each of the protruding end plates 152, 154 of the frame 150 has an aperture 156, 158, which are respectively aligned to the first speaker 202 and the second speaker 206. Further, the cover plate 180 also has at least one acoustic port, such as two acoustic ports 182, 184, which are also respectively aligned to the first speaker 202 and the second speaker 206. End sides of the display module 140 extend to the acoustic ports 182, 184 respectively, but does not covering the acoustic ports 182, 184. Further, each of the second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 may also have a proper opening without stopping the sound from the speaker. As a result, the sound from the speaker can be transported to the external environment from the cover plate 180.

Basically, the second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 are not higher than the battery module 130, so the second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 can be well disposed in the accommodating space 114 to fit the shape of the housing 110. The second circuit board 200 and the third circuit board 204 are beside the battery module 130 on the frame 150 as a general example.

As to the design of the structure to adapt the speaker, it can be categorized into two side types: bottom (bot) side type and top side type, depending on the sound-exiting side of the speaker is in front of the circuit board as the top side type or the speaker is behind the circuit board as the bottom side type.

FIG. 8-12 are enlarged cross-sectional views of the electronic apparatus, cutting at line II-II in FIG. 7, according to other embodiments of the application.

In FIG. 8, the speaker is one in design of bottom side type, as an example. The sound from the first speaker 202 is indicated by thick arrow. In this structure, the second circuit board 200 has a slot 200 a, the protruding end plate 152 also has the aperture 156 indicated in FIG. 7, and the cover plate 180 also has the acoustic port 182, so that the sound can be transported forwardly out from the cover plate 180. The first speaker 202 has a top side 202 a with a first sound hole 202 b and a bottom side 202 c with a first contact point 202 d, and the first contact point 202 d is electrically connected to the second circuit board 200. Here, a first conductive part 210 may also needed to electrically connect the first speaker 202, so that the first speaker 202 can be electrically connected to the second circuit board 200 via the first conductive part 210 and a second conductive part 212. The second conductive part 212 contacts the first conductive part 210 and the second circuit board 200 separately. The first conductive part 210 may be a flexible printed circuit board, and the second conductive part 212 may be a conductive elastic pad.

In FIG. 8, the second circuit board 200, the first speaker 202 and the first conductive part 210 may be rather close to the housing 110, which usually has an antenna 300. Since the second circuit board 200 may affect the antenna 300, served by the housing 110, the second circuit board 200 should be stacked over the first speaker 202 in order to increase the distance between the second circuit board 200 and the antenna 300. In the embodiment, the second circuit board 200 need not be too close to the housing 110 with the antenna 300, and the first conductive part 210 is distant from the housing 110.

Further in FIG. 9, it is also another design of bottom side type. However, an additional cap structure 214 can cover the first speaker 202. The cap structure 214 can also prevent the influence on the antenna 300.

In FIG. 10, based on the structure of FIG. 9, the sound exiting side of the first speaker 202 may also be disposed below the protruding end plate 152 of the frame 150 via the slot 200 a of the second circuit board 200, and the slot 200 a of the second circuit board 200 may be sufficiently large to adapt the first speaker 202.

Further in FIG. 11, it is also another design of bottom side type. However, an additional cap structure 214 can cover the first speaker 202.

Further in FIG. 12, the housing 110 has a cap structure 214 corresponding to the first speaker 202 and covering the first speaker 202. In other words, the cap structure 214 is integrally formed with the housing 110 to be an integrative unit.

Further in FIG. 13, it is a design of top side type. As can be seen, the second speaker 206 is stacked on the third circuit board 204 with directly electrical contact. Specifically, the second speaker 206 has a top side 206 a with a second sound hole 206 b and a bottom side 206 c with a second contact point 206 d, and the second contact point 206 d is electrical connected to the third circuit board 204. An additional cap structure 214 served as a sound box of the second speaker 206 is disposed below the third circuit board 204 and communicates with the second speaker 206 via a slot 204 a of the third circuit board 204. In this structure, the protruding end plate 154 also has the aperture 158 indicated in FIG. 7, and the cover plate 180 also has the acoustic port 184, so that the sound can be transported forwardly out from the cover plate 180. In the present embodiment, since the antenna 300 is not seriously influenced by the third circuit board, the second speaker 206 may be stacked over the third circuit board 204.

In light of the foregoing, the application presents an appearance of an electronic apparatus as a smooth arc shape, and a stacking method inside a space of the electronic apparatus allows interior components to be disposed in a housing with a design of a curved surface or an inclined plane. Accordingly, the application can effectively utilize an interior space of a housing to increase a capacity of a battery module.

Although the application has been described with reference to the above embodiments, it is not intended to limit the application. It will be apparent to people of ordinary skill in the art that modifications and variations to the described embodiments may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the application. Accordingly, the scope of the application will be defined by the attached claims not by the above detailed descriptions.
